Finding an unusual accessory to add to your living room, or a unique piece of wall art to hang in your bedroom is a great way to add something special to your home. It looks great when a house has a neutral colour scheme with little pops of quirkiness throughout.
Here are nine unusual accessories to add to your home.
A barometer is usually used by sailors to predict the ocean’s tides. However, it also makes for a funky accessory to add to your home. Barometers measure air pressure, so sticking one up on your wall could provide some interesting information about the air that you breathe.
Yes, they may not be everyone, but they can look neat hung up in your living room or kitchen. If you find a barometer for sale in your local shop or spot one online, you should definitely consider buying one.
Grandfather clocks make a great accessory to add to your home. How amazing would it be to place a large grandfather clock in your hallway for everybody to see as soon as they enter your house. Even if you don’t get one that is actually ticking and ringing on every hour, they make a grand ornament, and add an old-fashioned vibe to your home. They can be pretty expensive because most of them are antiques, but they worth the investment.
Coral ornaments are an unusual item to add to your home. They make a gorgeous accessory to add to your bathroom. You can buy real life dried coral shells to place on your window sills or on top of the bathtub. They come in a number of colours and finishes, so there is something out there that will match your home aesthetic perfectly.
Leopard Print Chair
Animal print is a bright and bold statement in any home. Many people opt for zebra print cushion covers or tiger print blankets, but have you ever considered a whole chair covered in animal print?
A leopard print statement chair is a perfect way to incorporate animal print into your home without it looking tacky or overbearing. In particular, tub chairs look amazing in animal print, and really complement a neutral aesthetic.
Plants add a touch of nature to your home. Desktop plants are not necessarily an unusual item, but having hanging baskets of plants coming down from your ceiling is not something that is commonly seen in people’s homes. All you have to do is add a few hooks to your ceiling, and you can hang some scented plants or colour flowers to them. This is going to brighten up any room and add a lovely fragrance to your home.
Abstract Wall Art
There are endless pieces of abstract wall art out there. They’re all unique in their own ways, and you are bound to find one that you love. You can hang up pieces of abstract wall art in any room, whether you want to admire them whilst relaxing in front of the living room TV, or whilst you’re taking a long bath. If you want an extra special piece, try going to an art auction where you can bid on your favourites.
An Antique Rug
There’s something so satisfying about rubbing your feet on a fluffy rug. Adding a large antique rug to your living room or hallway adds an unusual touch to your home. A rug adds character and comfort to your house, and is perfect to cover any cold laminate flooring. There are lots of unusual antique rugs available online with various colours, patterns, and sizes.
A Neon Sign
Neon signs are a great unusual touch that you add to your home. You can get custom made signs where you choose the words and the colour of the lights. Hanging one of these signs up in the kitchen or bedroom not only provides an ambient light to your room, but it’s also a great piece of wall art.
Another way you can spice up your walls is by adding adhesive wall stickers. There are unlimited options available. Whether you want to add the name of your favourite show, the outlines of your favourite animals, or a huge sticker of a tree, you can easily find some stickers to add an unusual touch to your home.
